    Amazing build, one of the nicest vintage NASCARs I've ever seen, spot-on stance and detailing, and an absolutely exhaustive conversion from a '64 to a '63. My head is still spinning. To the left, that is.

    I added white walls to this 1:18 Falcon by using an art store gel pen and holding the wheels to an electric can opener, which spins them slowly. Touch the pen to the tires, and that's all there is to it. If you mess one up, just wipe it down with thinner and start over.

    Great project, nothing beats the original AMT body for correctness (and rarity) and the combination of that and the better chassis and drivetrain really comes together well.

    Very nice job, you got the look just right.
    A friend told me that his parents were shopping for a new car in 1963 or 1964 to replace their '53 Ford sedan. His father insisted on looking at the Checker Marathon as he didn't like any of the "new" cars because they were too low, and he couldn't wear his hat, and a man wears a hat! So they went to a, or possibly the only Chicago Checker dealer (a very lonely man) and test drove the car. He liked it a lot, and asked his wife what she thought. She said, "If you buy this car, you will need to buy a second car for me because I refuse to ride in it." They got a Mercury Commuter wagon instead.

    Holy catz, that Tempest looks absolutely real! Love the color (looks a bit like '63 Ford Rose Beige) and the scale metallic flake size. Can't wait to see that one on the done stack.

    Aw man, one of my favorite groups ever. Terrible news.

    Thank you.

    I have a 1:18 Biante Falcon in my collection, bought maybe 20 years ago. I believe it's an XW GTHO.

    Going through a few threads that got blasted by the Bucket.

    It's a very special piece, and the plaque is a commendable tribute.

    Gee.

    Amazing. If it looks that good in those pictures, it must have been real dynamite on the contest table.
  13. Maindrian Pace added a post in a topic 1993 Ford F-150 Lightning   

    Looks great, the Monogram GT radials are perfect on it.

    Such luck!
  15. Maindrian Pace added a post in a topic My version of Chevys should be 1963 ElCamino!   

    I took these pics at Goodguys several years ago. Next body style, but same concept.
